A homeowner in Newton Highlands had tried various cleaning products on her kitchen floor to no avail. From footprints to spill residue, daily household activities had left their mark on the slate tiles. The grout was also in poor condition, with dark stains running all over the grout lines and giving an unhygienic impression that was hard to ignore, even when all other parts of the kitchen were kept in order at all times.

Slate Floor Before and After a Grout Sealing in Newton Highlands
After coming to her friends and colleagues asking for restoration tips, the owner learned about Sir Grout of Greater Boston, so she looked us up online to learn more about our methods. She read about our Newton Highlands Grout Sealing services and was instantly convinced. Our specialists were quick to respond once the homeowner asked for an in-home evaluation via our website's "Request a Quote" form.

On the day of the inspection, our crew evaluated the kitchen floor very closely, assessing the state of the tiles and checking for structural damage on the grout. As shown by the stains, the floor's surface had absorbed a lot of water, and the slate was soiled to the point that it looked washed out. Our specialists explained to the client that this was a common occurrence after exposing hard surfaces to generic cleaners and chemicals. The acidic ingredients in most of these products weaken the sealant's protection and open the grout pores so that water, dirt, and soil latch onto its surface. To solve the problem, our specialists needed to conduct a cleaning process and seal the grout lines to prevent new stains later on. They walked the client through Sir Grout's restoration process, and she agreed to schedule a new appointment to have the floor cleaned and sealed.

A couple of days later, our specialists came back with everything they needed to restore the floor. They started by soaking the floor with a pH-neutral cleaner and used a high-speed scrubber to wipe off the loose dirt. Unlike traditional products, our cleaner helps remove soil, grime, and any stickiness without damaging the natural stone or opening the grout pores. It also simplifies the process, so the surface doesn't have to withstand too much scrubbing. When our specialists removed all the stains, they moved on to the next step of the restoration.

For this, they applied a coat of ColorSeal on all the grout lines to ensure they stayed spotless through spills and foot traffic. Our sealant helps inhibit the spread of grime, fungi, mold, and mildew while protecting the grout pores from external elements, keeping the grout clean for much longer. Following the client's request, we used a white shade to recolor the grout, making the grout lines stand out even from afar.

Lastly, our specialists buffed the slate floor using a coat of Stone Armor to make the stone more resistant to daily wear and tear. With the restoration complete, they called the client back into the kitchen to check the floor's new look, and she was blown away by the result. Both the tiles and the grout looked almost brand new, and the client marveled over how beautiful the floor enhanced the beauty of the whole kitchen. She thanked our specialists and promised to recommend Sir Grout of Greater Boston to everyone she knew.

The client was eager to learn more cleaning tips for slate surfaces, so our specialists listed various pointers to help her in the future. They recommended replacing traditional cleaners like bleach and soap-based formulas with pH-neutral products like Sir Grout's Natural Hard Surface Cleaner. Our product's formula combines high-quality ingredients and removes all the risks that go with using harsh chemicals. It doesn't discolor the tiles or release chemical fumes into your living spaces. Moreover, our cleaner enhances the sealant's protection instead of wearing it down in time. Our specialists also suggested using a mop, a towel, or a terry cloth to wipe spills and scrub off the stickiness, as these tools don't risk leaving scratch marks on the stone. Their last recommendation was to keep an eye on the floors while using the kitchen to ensure there were no droplets, spill residue, or other liquids that could prompt the growth of mold and mildew. Along with proper indoor ventilation, these steps help maintain a dry surface that's easier to clean.
